BBQ Chicken Salad  

As prepared by S Caron

Still working on your New Year’s resolution to slim down? Here's the answer to boring diet food: a salad packed with flavor, ease and speed -- the trifecta of good-for-you food!

Barbecue Chicken Salad is a combo of fab flavor and texture contrasts – salty and sweet, tender and crisp, crunchy and creamy. It’s like your favorite chicken sandwich, lightened up without the roll and served in a vibrant salad.


Here's all you need:

BBQ Chicken Salad Ingredients

This sweet and fabulous salad starts with a bed of baby lettuce. Choose whatever variety you like the best. Or use your favorite lettuce torn into bite size bits. Use leftover chicken for this if you have it. It’s particularly good if it’s leftover rotisserie chicken. Mmm. Sprinkle it with crumbled bacon. Everything is better with bacon.

Follow that with whatever veggies you want, along with blue cheese and a light drizzle of barbecue sauce. And if that’s not enough, just finish it off with your favorite Italian dressing.
